About Us

Our Mission

Abode Services' mission is to end homelessness by assisting low-income, un-housed people, including those with special needs, to secure stable, supportive housing; and to be advocates for the removal of the causes of homelessness.

We develop and implement innovative programs to end homelessness. Our agency is built on the principles of Housing First, a proven approach that has demonstrated results far superior to the traditional approaches to homelessness.

The 2019 Journey Home Breakfast video features a Bay Area landlord who works with Abode Services to help rehouse people in need. The video also features two Abode participants who share their journeys from homelessness to finding a home.

We were founded in Alameda County in 1989 when a small group of people came together to address a growing problem with family homelessness in the Tri-City Area.

Since then, we have expanded our impact throughout the Bay Area, serving more than 8,000 adults and children each year in Alameda, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, and Napa counties. Our results show how effective our work has been in ending homelessness for vulnerable adults and children throughout our community. 


Abode Services is proud to be a double bottom line agency with a commitment to effective financial management that is transparent to donors and funders and ensures the long-term stability of our programs.
